“My Home - I wish!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013 for a stay in June 2012

I spent weeks attempting to find reasonable lodging in Edinburgh. Something that was convenient to the major attractions, had some cooking facilities (at least a microwave) and wasn't hundreds of dollars per night. What a pleasure it was to find this place! Great location, superb price for the height of summer & every amenity I needed.
I stayed here for 6 nights at the end of June. It was absolutely perfect. Took me not even 10 minutes to climb up ALL the stairs to get to the Castle. I did numerous day tours & they all picked up at the Castle as well. Everything was within walking distance.
The suite itself was perfect for one person. Maybe two could have shared, but if you're used to North American sizes, this was pretty cosy.
It came stocked with cream, tea and some coffee. The owner gave great directions to a little supermarket about a 2 minute walk up the street. Eating out in Edinburgh is very expensive whereas groceries are reasonably priced. This was the perfect option.
The view from the bedroom & kitchen window was fabulous. I'd never tire of that.
The laundry in suite was a blessing! I made good use of that!
The owner was so helpful - first with detailed instructions when I booked, then detailed directions/options on how to get to the suite from the airport. She then arrived about 20 minutes after I did to see how things were. She was super friendly & a great help.

“Great find and so central”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012 for a stay in April 2011

We stayed for 3 or 4 days last year and it was well appointed and clean. The bed was very comfortable, and it has a good kitchen and bathroom (we Australians appreciate good plumbing!). It is very central (but quiet) and the view of the castle from the kitchen window is quite dramatic! Helpful and friendly owner. We would definitely stay there again and recommend to our friends.
